 As record heats spread across the U.S. (and the globe), air conditioning systems and the power systems they depend upon are getting a workout.  These HVAC systems – heating, cooling and ventilation – “account for approximately 50 percent of energy consumption in the average home" and about 39% of energy use in commercial buildings in the U.S., and they last for 10-15 years,  By the time you read this, there's another new technology, and there's a pressing demand for more eco-conscious systems.

So, how do you juggle these competing demands and keep your talented team engaged?  Listen to master juggler and innovator Rasha Hasaneen, VP of Product Management Excellence and Innovation at Ingersoll Rand, who does this every day.
